Lodge Cast Iron is my holy grail cast iron company because they fulfill all of my many needs: accessible, easy cleaning, long-lasting, reliable, and most of all, affordable.
Affordability is tough when it comes to cast iron because picking the right pan could mean that your grandkids will be cooking with them. Lodge pans can be over $100, but they have almost everything you could need under $75.
Right now, on the other hand, you can get some of Lodge Cast Iron’s best pans and ovens for less than $50 on Amazon! Select products from Lodge Cast Iron have been deeply discounted – but not every product. Luckily, the most impressively low-priced pieces are from what I would consider the core collection of cast iron cookware that everyone should own. I’m not sure if these discounts are connected with a particular holiday sale, so I’m not sure how long it will last.
What I do know is that there is a 10 1/4″ Lodge Cast Iron pan for $15 and a cast iron grill pan for $15, and I’m about to lose my #%^*.
Lodge Cast Iron 10 ¼” Pre-Seasoned Skillet
Pre-seasoned means that there is already a polymer coating on the inside of the pan. This kind of gives you a head-start on “seasoning your cast iron” (read my guide to cleaning cast iron to make sense of all of this).
That skillet up there can take you really, really far when it comes to cooking. Every meal of your day could be prepared successfully in that one pan. Hell, your entire family could have meals from that one pan, and of course I am not forgetting dessert – how dare you. Brownies and gigantic cookies baked in cast iron have a texture that can’t be duplicated by even the nicest baking tins.
That skillet caught my eye because I don’t have it. The sale extends way beyond a 10 ¼” skillet, that just happens to be one piece of Lodge Cast Iron that I don’t have yet… The rest of the sale is full of stuff I’ve already treated myself to over the last several years. Here are some of my favorites:
Lodge Cast Iron 10 ½” Round Griddle Pan
Lodge Cast Iron 5QT Dutch Oven
And if I have one of those, you undoubtedly need…
Lodge Cast Iron 12″ Dutch Oven Tote Bag
Lodge Cast Iron 10 ½” Grill Pan
Lodge Cast Iron 15oz. Melting Bowl
Lodge Cast Iron Reversible Grill/Griddle
And then there’s one item that… I’m not sure… that I want. Despite the fact that it lead me to the sale, initially, I’m pretty sure that it’s not meant to be anywhere near me.
Lodge Cast Iron Enameled Apple Pot
I mean, it’s cute, right? But not in a “let me store that in my kitchen indefinitely” kind of way. It’s an apple, and it’s only 3.5 QT, so… it’s a pass for me, personally. But maybe you have an aunt or Washington resident who might like to have this for the holidays! This apple has a soulmate out there, I just have no idea who they are.
These were the best Lodge Cast Iron deals I could find, but maybe you can sleuth some up yourself! View the entire Lodge Cast Iron selection on Amazon.
